"Thank You" card by Shari Thurman
Supplies - Patterned paper, Rub-ons and Trim: October Afternoon; Alphabet: American Crafts; Cardstock: Bazzill; Adhesive: ATG by Scotch; Ink: Colorbox Chalk Ink (Chestnut Roan); Thread: Coats and Clark

Variation #1: I used the card as the background and placed 1 1/2" plaid strip and 1/2" polka dot strip at the top. I then used a 1 1/2" plaid strip and 1/4" polka dot strip at the bottom of the card.

Variation #2: I machine stitched the trim to the polka dot strip and machine stitched the 1/4" strip with regular and zig zag stitching also.

Variation #3: I used rub-on snowflakes and machine stitched with cream and red thread.

I love using my Christmas paper collections to create thank you notes after the holidays. This was a fun sketch to work with.

I am not a big fan of winter (except for the hockey, of course) but I do love to used the winter collections.

Shari - Beautiful. I like that you used red for your main colour. The glitter letters are perfect and the pom poms are adorable.

Lynette - He really is a Snow Angel. Look and those little toes. I love your hanging snowflakes and the way you did your words along the bottom. Brilliant.
